Don't be silly, subby... Who ever heard of blind weights?

Something seems vaguely homoerotic about this picture. I don't know what it is, but something does.

Well, christ! Maybe if he hadn't drank himself blind they wouldn't feature him in their binge drinking videos!

Who cares. I bet he doesn't see anything wrong with this.
 
2013-02-28 05:47:28 AM  
Is it bad that I want to make fun of his spelling mistakes even though he is blind?

Have you ever considered being gay?

"An enormous amount of effort and anguish is expended on people who have simply got themselves in such a drunken state that emergency services have to become involved to look after them or patch up the mess that they leave," Mr Kaldas said.

I have to say I probably drink too much, but I have never had emergency services involved.

WTF? I pasted stuff that didn't show up in preview. Must be the alchahol.

Because there's nothing erotic at all about that pic.

What if my fetish happens to be blue wall signs that have white lettering?

THEN WHAT, MISTER SMART GUY.

Alchahol, which is what we were drinking. This would sharpen you up and make you ready for a bit of the old ultra-violonce.

It's too bad Australians don't have any real rights in their country, or this guy could probably get litigious on their asses.

something about the worst composition I've seen in a photo in twenty five years?
Crappy images do it for you?

ABC distorting facts?  No way!  I can not believe it.

"The program has said they are sorry he was portrayed in this light, but explained the footage was filmed in a public place...While the program did not suggest all those featured were drunk, it was shown in the context of people out and having a good time..."

*cough*bullshiat*cough*

Distorting facts? A little overboard eh? It's a mistake. A poor choice for B-roll footage....but simply a mistake.

He was drunk, too. Always playing the blind card.

please, it's intentional. there's not even an apology. Just "well, it was in public. (ignore how we misconstrued information)". ABC is as reliable for accuracy as my poop is an indicator of global weather trends.

So you are saying that nobody ever drinks to excess and causes problems to themselves or others?
 
2013-02-28 10:24:09 AM  
Well, see, here's another thing...  This was a bit on a "show".  It wasn't like the evening news anchor came on and did a story specifically about him.

Would actually think this was a bit of a non-story (they did offer to cut that part of the footage out of the online video and any future TV re-broadcasts) if they hadn't already deliberately edited the video to make him look drunk in the first place (they cut his cane out of the footage, according to TFA).

So, easy for them to say "oh, our bad, we won't show it again", when they edited it so it would look worse to start with.  I have to wonder if, having decided to do a show on really drunk people wandering around (or whatever) they couldn't actually find enough drunk people wandering around to record, so they had to beef it up with footage of blind people.  What, manufactured outrage on my news...say it ain't so!

They couldn't go the obvious route of standing outside a dive bar, because by 2 am, the reporters and cameramen would all be plastered and stumbling around themselves. Nothing is more sanctimonious than a sinner with vices to hide.
